COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Golden naked oats mashed with dark crystal and robust roasted malts create a luscious black brew with a satin smooth finish. Layering UK Target hops in the boil adds a pleasant, earthy complexity while higher fermentation temperatures enhance the overall flavor with fruity esters. An old-world style, done the Green Flash way. Big, bold, flavorful and complex – Double Stout.

Mad_Ferret (759) - SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
12oz bottle @ Bishops Folkunga. Black with a big compact mocha brown head. Decent lace. Aroma: Roasted with coffee and bitter chocolate, sweet caramel. Some acidic ashy notes with wet burnt wood gives a dimension to the sweetness. Taste: Sweet, roasted, a bit umami with a hint of salty chocolate and soy, sweet caramel, vague hints of ripe tropical fruit mixes with the saltiness. Medium to bigger body, soft carbonation, a bit sticky texture. Very tasty, rich and american, but with more meaty umami than expected. A bit like a barrel aged stout with a dash of DIPA in it.

magdalar (516) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 4, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours black, with almost no head. Smells of roasted and smoked malts, with lots of soy sauce. Tastes of smoky, salty, sweet malt, with a medium bitterness that lasts. Medium bodied, flat carbonation, oily texture. Finishes dry and bitter.

J_man (796) - Tustin, California, USA - APR 2, 2012
Black as night, even under an intense light, nothing gets through. Topped with a foamy, brown head and roasted/charred aromas with a slight sour edge. The body is slightly creamy, but the strong char flavor adds astringency to cut through it. Bittersweet and dark chocolate hit first followed by a molasses sweetness mixed with a little vanilla then finishing with a dry cocoa aftertaste. The balance between sweet and bitter is very well done here especially since both are in abundance. Leaves behind lingering chocolate flavors and a slight vegetal bitterness. 8.8% ABV? Where’s it hiding? Dangerously delicious stout.

This is a manly beer. I can feel the hair growing on my chest. Thick and DARK brown, this one has the roasty malty goodness reminiscent of coffee. Pours with a small, but brown head, everything is awesome about this beer. I love it.

I was totally blown away by this mellow flavorful double stout. Since it's a Green Flash beer I expected to be knocked on my ass by An intense beer, but I'm floored by all the subtle nuances this brew offers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Beersiveknown (4003) - NORTHERN IRELAND - MAR 27, 2012
Rich coffee nose on this dark brown beer with cola head. Collapses to a lacing. Thick molten chocolate in the body with a rich and roasted barley finish. Warming alcohol lingers at back of throat

trevor211 (1437) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 24, 2012
Was certainly pleased to find this one at the local shop! Pours black, with a creamy tan head that dissipates into a mocha-colored film. Pretty. Burnt toffee, marshmallow creme, and dark roasted malts on the nose. Big, smooth flavor mirrors the aroma, with a slight nuttiness and a weak hop punch at the finish. Nice and smooth -- just a bit of alcohol burn -- this one is really tasty for something sold in a sixer.
